Running as Honey Boo Boo: Spooktacular Style

In the infamous words of Alana Thompson, “Dolla make me HOLLA! Honey Boo Boo Child…”

Those were all the motivational words I needed to help with creating my Honey Boo Boo costume for the Inaugural Spooktacular 10k run down at Lake Murray!

Yesterday down in San Diego, there was a most exciting costume race for all level of runners. I am not a huge fan of racing, but after seeing the course and the fact that it was all Halloweeny, I became very eager to participate.

Fredo and I joined the 800 people who raced around the lake in the early morning. This event was so well-organized, especially for being the inaugural one! There were Starbucks Coffee stands, muffins, cookies, fruit, face painting, and of course a costume competition!

I can’t wait to do it again next year!

Hoping my own version of “Go Go Juice” would get me through this!

Lake Murray at 6am! It was 47* when we arrived and this costume was not helping keep me warm, this race needed to start ASAP!

Gandolf was awesome! I loved seeing all the creative people in their costumes, and all you people who didn’t dress up, YOU SUCK! It was a costume race! Come on!

The warm-up part of the race was doing the “Thriller” dance.
